Girly Spiderswebs

Today I managed to finish my spiderweb quilt. After a few tense moments I decided it wasn't the end of the world if my triangles and squares in the centres of the blocks were not going to be perfect. So, I got over it, moved forward and finished the top.

I used one of Kaffe's newer fabrics - Big Blooms -as the centre fabric. Big decision that one, I tried to audition a non pink variety, but, alas, this quilt just asked to be pink.

Peonies, coconut ice, roses that smell heavenly, strawberries and cream, a hint of sugar and spice and all things very pretty, its girlie but I love it. Imaine if you had gone with the blue it would have made it a different quilt! Go the pink!!!!
